When blending a mixture of solids and liquid, it helps to put the liquid in the blender first, so the mixture can puree easily.

Ingredients

English cucumber(s)

2 medium, peeled

Plain fat free yogurt

16 oz, container

Garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s)

Fresh lime juice

1 Tbsp, or lemon juice

Table salt

½ tsp

Mint leaves

2 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. Dice enough of the cucumber to equal 1⁄3 cup; set aside. Cut the remaining cucumber into chunks.
  2. Put the yogurt, garlic, lime juice, salt, and cucumber chunks in a blender; puree until smooth. Pour into a medium bowl; stir in the reserved diced cucumber and the mint. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Yields generous 1 cup per serving.

Notes

This recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled. Just be sure to puree it in batches.
